ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - Young hunters in New York can get a jump on turkey season this weekend.

Spring turkey season does not open until May 1 in upstate New York. But the annual youth turkey hunting weekend is April 23-24. Junior hunters aged 12 through 15 will be allowed to hunt turkey in upstate New York and Suffolk County.

The young hunters must hold a license and a turkey permit. They are required to hunt with an older guardian and may take one bearded bird.
